If you’re worried about your family’s lack of healthy activities but are also worried about how you don’t have enough room at home to play sports then you need to stop worrying and start thing smart. There’s a very obvious thing you can do to remedy this predicament of yours. You just need to get a ping pong table, a couple of pair of bats and a whole lot of ping pong balls (you’ll lose them quite a lot).
Even if you don’t have room for a full-sized ping pong table at home, you can still play very competitive games on a mini ping pong table. In fact, since this table is smaller, there’s also lesser room for landing the ball at the wrong side of the court. Basically, playing on a mini ping pong table might even make you better at the game since you won’t have trouble adjusting to a larger table. Here are some ways in which ping pong is the perfect indoor sport for you and your family.
It Improves Your Reflexes
Since ping pong is such a fast-paced game and there’s very little distance between you and your opponent, you’ll have to react before you even have time to think. As a result? You’ll gain better reflexes the more you play.
Develops Mental Activity
Just like in regular tennis, the way you hit the ball, curve it and speed it is very crucial to the game. Only, on a table, you’ll have to be even sharper when playing the game. This way, you can really develop yourself mentally by playing the sport.
It’s a Social Game
Ping pong is for everyone and it’s fun to teach just like it’s fun to play. You can play it with anyone you invite over and end up having a great time.
